What we do

JRS-Canada works with Canadian bishops and national organizations for the protection of refugees.
Jesuit Refugee Service Canada

Jesuit Refugee Service Canada or JRS-Canada is an apostolate initiated jointly by the two Canadian Jesuit Provinces. JRS-Canada works with Canadian bishops and national organizations for the protection of refugees.  The office is responsible for circulating information regarding JRS and its international partners, particularly JRS in the Americas. 

JRS-Canada plays a significant role in the shaping of public opinion about the victims of forced displacement worldwide. It supports advocacy with the Canadian government on migration refugeeissues by Jesuit works or JRS’ partners.

The office opened in August 2015, under the direction of Norbert Piché, the country director for JRS-Canada.
